Mr. Tosin Tomori was our first guest speaker. He shared the unique opportunities available to young African engineers who choose to remain within the shores of the continent and how they can be part of it. More details in this video:
Dr. Eddie Diei focus on a rather interesting comparison between the Nigerian engineering education system and what obtains in the United States. He also talked about opportunities available to students from organizations that can can widen their experience before graduating. If you’ve been curious about the foreign engineering terrain or wondering where you fit in, here’s an opportunity to learn the facts that help you judiciously weigh your options.
Mr. Julian Mbakwe, from Autodesk, talked about the Future of Making Things; Design & Manufacturing with Autodesk. He went into the details of the wide range of possibilities available in the use of different Autodesk softwares and how you can find the one that best suits your engineering field.
Mr. Emmanuel Olowosulu talked about the final submission process and final submission templates expected from the contestants.
Finally the session was wrapped up with a question and Answer session.
Big thanks to all our attendees, competitors, judges, corporate and individual sponsors for making the first S2P Engineering Design Competition a success.
Huge congratulations to our 10 finalists and to team Koye Hydro who emerged ahead of over 40 teams as the Winner of the S2PAfrica EDC 2022, taking home $10,000 IDRC grand prize and $2000 from Cummins West Africa, to fund the development of their project as well as teams KeyTrick and Improved Charcoal Stove came in second and third respectively.
A new bar has been set and we can’t wait for EDC 2023.
A feature interview with Miss Bukunmi Shonde, one of the undergraduate Mechanical Engineering students who took the Continuum Mechanics course developed by S2PAfrica. She was on a six-month internship program with Tropical Naturals Limited Lagos, Nigeria, and shares in this interview how she was able to apply knowledge obtained in the classroom during her internship.
Since the inception of our Internship Program, we have worked with 4 promising engineering students and their curiosity, intelligence, and hard work have enriched the program immensely. They have also done an excellent job of creating our virtual laboratories, all of this accomplished before reaching their capstone year.
